    Please download and run Autoruns.

    Click on File.

    Click on Save…

    Save the new AutoRuns Data (*.arn) file to your desktop.

    Close the Autoruns program.

    Right-click on the new desktop AutoRuns .arn file.

    Select Send To > Compressed (zipped) Folder.

    Attach the compressed file to your next post.

    If you can't connect to the Internet to download the program, do it from a working computer and copy the program to a USB flash drive or another removable device. Then, plug it into your faulty computer, save it to your hard drive and run the program.

    If its just as simply as he unchecked the wrong things under msconfig could he not simply boot into safe mode and undo his changes then reboot normally?
